Dear Deepayan and dear list,

I notice a small inconsistency with the command completion of the R CMD check. --no-latex is deprecated sincs R 2.12.0 and defunct since 2.13.0 but the command line completion still suggests it:

cb_at_cbdesktop:~/r-devel$ bin/R CMD check --no-<here I hit tab>
--no-clean      --no-examples   --no-latex      --no-vignettes
--no-codoc      --no-install    --no-tests
cb_at_cbdesktop:~/r-devel$ bin/R CMD check --no-latex
Fehler: '--no-latex' is defunct: use '--no-manual' instead

I gather the command line options could be updated to current R CMD check in file /etc/bash_completion.d/R:

cb_at_cbdesktop:~/tmp$ diff R /etc/bash_completion.d/R 244,247c244,245

< 		    --no-install --no-tests --no-vignettes --no-manual \
<           --no-rebuild-vignettes --install-args  --check-subdirs \
<           --extra-arch --multiarch --no-multiarch --force-multiarch \
< 		    --timings  --use-gct --use-valgrind --rcfile"

> --no-install --no-tests --no-vignettes --no-latex \
> --use-gct --use-valgrind --rcfile"

I gather from the mailing list archives, that the original is available at http://code.google.com/p/rcompletion/source/browse/trunk/bash_completion/R

Should I suggest the patch there? Will changes propagate to the packaged linux distributions from there or should the updated file be brought to the attention somewhere else?

Best regards,
